Ullink Continues Focus on Ultra Low Latency With Azul Zing Partnership

Subscribe to our newsletter

Ullink is continuing its focus on squeezing microseconds of latency from its trade execution and pre-trade risk systems, by partnering with Azul Systems, which offers a low and predictable latency Java virtual machine (JVM).

Laurent Useldinger, CEO of Ullink, comments: “We have been testing the capabilities of the Azul solution for sometime; during that period we have seen a definite and significant improvement in the consistency of message delivery across our global routing network.”

Azul’s Zing JVM is 100% compatible with the standard distribution but is optimised for the Linux operating system, reducing latency and jitter that is often associated with the standard JVM. Applications – such as Ullink’s trading system suite – that are written in Java require a JVM to execute on host operating system and hardware platforms.

Last year, Ullink partnered with Fiberblaze to incorporate FPGA technology into its pre-trade risk components, reducing their processing latency to just two microseconds.
